My Device: Playbook Simulator

How to test Web application on Playbook Simulator?

Hi, everybody.


I hope you can help me with my question.


I've made a simple application which use HTTPService.

My question is in this part:


        import mx.rpc.events.ResultEvent;
	import mx.rpc.events.FaultEvent;
	public function handlePlain(event:ResultEvent):void
	    shippingOptions.text = event.result.toString();
	public function handleFault(event:FaultEvent):void
	    shippingOptions.text = event.fault.faultString;

        <mx:request xmlns="">




When I run my app "on Desktop" (device to simulate is BlackBerry Playbook) - everything is Ok.


But when I change my configuration to run app "on Device" - I have "HTTP request error" as a result.


Can I run my application on Playbook SIMULATOR (sorry for Caps, but it is important word Smiley Happy )?

And if I can - what I'm doing wrong?


Additional info:

1. VMware network is bridged

2. I have no problems with connection between Flex Builder (I use Burrito) and simulator

3. I work on Windows XP


Thank you
